The almond flour berry dessert bake is not quite a crumble but it is delicious! The flours used in this recipe are a gluten free flour made from rice and millet flours, and almond flour. There is no all purpose flour in this recipe. The butter and pistachios add a richness to the topping that is a great contrast to the sweetness of the berries! The almond flour berry dessert bake can be a last minute dish or one you can make in advance! If it is not sweet enough you can use some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
The topping for the almond flour berry dessert
The topping could not be easier! Just add all of the topping ingredients and add them to a bowl. Mix the topping ingredients until well combined. I originally was trying to make a crumble. The dough ended up coming together resembling a shortbread dough. I tasted the uncooked dough and it tasted incredible! So I just went with it! I am going to use the basic recipe for a start to cookies in the future. The gluten free flour and the almond flour were purchased locally. I’m excited to have discovered that the flour is easily available and is easy to work with!
The preparation of the berries is just as easy as the preparation of the topping! My wife and I purchase bags of frozen mixed berries for our smoothies. I personally did not think the berries were sweet enough so I mixed in some pure maple syrup. It was just enough to sweeten it up!
Putting it all together
I used the first baking dish I could get my hands on because I was not sure how this would bake. So I grabbed a glass loaf pan and place the frozen berry mixture on the bottom of the pan. I then formed the toppin into discs and placed them on top of the berries. The look is kind of rustic, but I wanted the berries to cook through a bit to the top. This is such an easy recipe that experimenting will still result in a great tasting dessert!
